Teaching Tips

  • There are the dreams you have at night and then the daydreams of the day. Create a little preschool game with your child about their daydreams. Start a sentence with, “When I grow up I dream I will ________” Encourage your child to talk about what they will be, what they will do, and the fantastic places they imagine they will go! Practice the sign for dream with each statement.
  • Does your child have scary dreams? Make a “sweet dream” spray to ease bedtime fears. Fill a spray bottle with just water, or scent it with gentle oil like lavender. Spray at bedtime with a wish for “sweet dreams!”

Dream! You show all the dreams inside your head. Dream!
